~ Pineapple Cheese Cake ~


Pineapple Cheese Torte Recipe
This recipe is from Taste of Home ~ years ago.

Pineapple Cheese Cake

Crust
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup confectioners' sugar
1/4 cup finely chopped almonds
1/3 cup butter, softened

Filling
2 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
2/3 cup unsweetened pineapple juice

Pineapple Topping
1 can (20 ounces) crushed pineapple
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
Fresh strawberries, optional

In a bowl, combine crust ingredients until blended; pat into a greased 11-in. x 7-in. baking dish. Bake at 350° for 20 minutes. In a small bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs. Stir in juice. Pour over hot crust. Bake for 25 minutes or until center is set. Cool on a wire rack.

For topping, drain pineapple, reserving 1 cup juice. Set pineapple aside. In a small saucepan, combine flour, sugar and reserved pineapple juice until smooth. Bring to a boil. Cook and stir for 1 minute or until thickened and bubbly. Remove from the heat; fold in pineapple. Cool.

In a small bowl, beat cream until soft peaks form; fold into topping. Carefully spread over top. Refrigerate for 6 hours or overnight. Garnish with strawberries if desired. Yield: 12-16 servings.

  3. I loved those Taste of Home magazines! I kept a bunch of them and still use them - but more often I just get them out and read them again!! Did you ever make 'Better Than Sex' cake? It is delicious and has pineapple in it!

  4. I pinned your recipe. I am conflicted. I think this a cake you must take to a party, if you dared make it at home you would probably eat the whole thing. It looks scrumptious.
